Forster v. Worthington

July 13, 2006

ANTHONY D. FORSTER, PETITIONER,
v.
JAMES WORTHINGTON, WARDEN, RESPONDENT.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Leon Jordan United States District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

The court is in receipt of a petition for the writ of habeas corpus pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2254 and an application to proceed in forma pauperis. The application to proceed in forma pauperis is GRANTED. The Clerk is DIRECTED to file this action without prepayment of costs or other fees as of the date the petition was received.

The petitioner attacks the legality of his confinement under a judgment of conviction for especially aggravated robbery entered by the Criminal Court for Davidson County, Tennessee. 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d) grants discretion to this court to transfer petitioner's application for the writ of habeas corpus to the district court for the district in which petitioner was convicted. Accordingly, in the interests of justice, judicial economy and convenience of the parties and witnesses, the Clerk is DIRECTED to transfer this action to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, Nashville Division, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2241(d).
